Production Control - MRO
Making things Happen
There are number of opportunities exist within the Production Control business area to deliver cost savings. The real challenge is to identify the efficient business processes that can be used to gather data, analyze and measure the opportunities and finally to act upon them to improve the turn around time (TAT)
There is a continuous effort from Aviation MRO’s (Part 145 approved ) to improve their operational effectiveness and reduce costs in a bid to stay ahead of the competition.
The objectives of Production Planning are
Often the Production Planners have no control on the required Manpower and either the activity is over resourced (waste of funds) or under resourced - requiring overtime (waste of funds).
2) We have the correct Documentation - Incorrect Documentation often impacts the performance of maintenance and becomes a source of “LOST TIME”
3) We have correct Spares, Material and Tooling -
Any interruptions in the availability of Spares, Material and Tooling can lead to unnecessary delays, much of this delay may be masked within the totality of the Maintenance check and the true source of the cost impact may not be assigned to the correct causal factor.
4) We have appropriate Facilities and Equipment -
It goes without saying that service provider need the right facilities to perform the maintenance, however this also includes the availability of the ground equipment, support stands and docking etc. to facilitate access to the aircraft. Equipment which is not available when it is needed again leads to “LOST TIME”
